Black Bean Salsa
The Recipe of the Month for October comes to us from Peggy Brown.
She's knocking these recipes out of the park! This Black Bean Salsa is great for any occasion, whether it's a day of watching football with friends and family, or the twelfth Halloween party you've been invited to. It's delicious and pretty darn healthy for a party food, so give it a shot! You won't be disappointed!
A couple of tips before we get to the main event. This recipe makes a huge batch of salsa. You can cute everything in half and still have a large portion to go around. The onion is strong and gets stronger after a few days. Keep that in mind before you decide to alter the recipe and add another. Some of us have learned from experience...
2 cans black beans, rinsed & drained
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
1 10-oz. can diced tomatoes and green chilies (do not drain)
1 7.5-oz jar roasted red peppers, drained and diced
2 plum tomatoes, diced
1 medium red onion, finely diced
2/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced or finely chopped
1/3 cup orange juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy! That's it!
